# Basic properties of SLE

@article{Rohde2001BasicPO, title={Basic properties of SLE}, author={Steffen Rohde and Oded Schramm}, journal={Annals of Mathematics}, year={2001}, volume={161}, pages={883-924} }

SLEκ is a random growth process based on Loewner’s equation with driving parameter a one-dimensional Brownian motion running with speed κ. This process is intimately connected with scaling limits of percolation clusters and with the outer boundary of Brownian motion, and is conjectured to correspond to scaling limits of several other discrete processes in two dimensions.

Schramm Loewner Evolutions (SLE) are random increasing hulls defined through the Loewner equation driven by Brownian motion. It is known that the increasing hulls are generated by continuous curves.… Expand
